Why Take Part?
My partner Jane has Multiple Sclerosis, she cannot walk or even hold a cup of tea in her hand so besides working full time I am a full-time carer. It has been tough, but I always have to remember it is tougher for Jane and the 'Prosac' that has helped me to cope with everything is driving my beautiful 1954 Chevy Bel Air, MY 1954 GMC V8 PICK UP TRUCK and going to a dance once a week to jive my legs off. I really don't know how I would have coped without the Rock 'n' Roll family and this is how the seed of an idea came about to launch this site.
I want to give someone the chance to experience the thrill of driving a beautiful classic car and also to benefit the wonderful MS Society who have been so helpful, supportive to Jane and others like her who also suffer from this debilitating illness Multiple Sclerosis. So part of the proceeds of each prize draw will be going to one of the clubs that I attend and part to the MS Society. I know like myself, a lot of people rely on the family of Rock 'n' Roll at our clubs and some of these clubs are struggling to get enough people to attend so that bands can be booked or to just simply keep afloat. So most of the competitions will give people the opportunity to buy a ticket for £10.00, mostly there will be just 3000 tickets sold and 15% of the proceeds will be split between the MS Society and one of my local clubs. Usually £3,500 to MS and a £1,000 to a local club.
I will as I've said be offering some beautiful Classic cars as prizes but occasionally I might offer up something different like a Wurlitzer Juke Box or a trip to Memphis. So keep following and you could be in with a chance to win an absolutely one-off prize and as they say you have to be in it to win it!

This is a a 1954 GMC pick-up, of course, it's the same as a Chevy, but I think a little rarer. It's a California truck with no rust, we have wire brushed it off underneath and given it a coat of waxoyl under seal, so it will stay in this condition on our roads. It is fitted with a 60s 327 V8 and auto box, both are in fantastic working order, and it drives, and stops perfectly. It has 5 new tyres, wheels have been refurbished and powder coated. Seat and headlining have been recovered as well as the door panels. The bed has also been replaced with a single wooden sheet. It has recently had a new starter motor, new battery, new prop shaft, shaft joints and new fuel pipes.
So, there you have it, a very honest truck, rot free, nothing covered up, already has a desirable engine option. A perfect truck to put your own mark on that is ready to drive and even comes with 12-months MOT.
Also note that if you don't want the truck yourself, we can sell it for you and offer you the cash alternative.
Since the launch of this competition covid has meant that all our outdoor promotions have had to be cancelled and so the only way that we have been able to sell tickets is through Facebook and although there has been a terrific response it is a slow process to sell tickets this way. With the uncertainty of when the end of covid will be we have decided that the draw cannot be continually postponed so we have decided that the draw will be made on the 2nd December 2020 whether the 3000 tickets have sold or not, but we will announce on the 1st December 2020 whether enough tickets have been sold so that the truck can be presented as the prize in the draw or whether it will have to be a significant cash prize instead. Saying this, as at 7th September 2020 we have only to sell another 749 tickets so that we can break even, present the truck as the prize and benefit the MS Society. I am sure we can do this with your help.
